Some say that a little red wine can be good for you, but too much, too often, can ruin your life. It’s the same with social media.

Social media has allowed us to connect with people around the world. It has allowed us to share our voice, our thoughts, and our dreams. But as much is it pulls people together; it is also drives us apart.


We have opportunities to connect, learn, and to be entertained by social media. We need to learn how to discipline ourselves, think for ourselves, and not allow ourselves to become slaves to the screen.


We have impulses and knee-jerk reactions to events that excite and irritate us. Social media gives us an immediate outlet for our thoughts before we can contemplate their relevance or their ultimate effect. Social media hastens our reaction before we have a chance to breathe.


Another troubling fact about social media is that it is filled with manipulation. It is the definitive influencing tool. It learns all about us and sways our opinions without us even knowing. What’s worse, is even when we see it happening, we don’t believe it.



Some of the problems with Social Media…

B – Bots and Fake People

A – Adaptable Algorithms

C – Customer or Product

O – Opinions Last Forever

N – No Time to Think!


Some of the solutions…

B – Back away and think before you respond

A – Ask yourself if this really makes sense.

C – Consider doing more research

O – Opinions are not NEWS

N – Now GO OUTSIDE!


The secret is in the balance and the valence.

Tell Siri and Alexa that you want to tune in, never mind, they already knows.
